...with Alice and me. I’m a woman in my 60s who, like many others, finds that one of my main tasks these days is taking care of my mother. Alice (photo below) is 99. She moved from Iowa to Oregon five years ago and lives in an apartment in an assisted living facility she calls The Place. This blog is pretty much all Alice all the time, with occasional diversions to other topics, such as family histories, aging, art, the art of aging, and poetry.
Roses Are Red, Shoes Are Black: A new book in honor of Alice’s beloved black flats from Goodwill.
